Clearwater Fashion Week

Clearwater Fashion WeekI had been anticipating Clearwater Fashion Week from the event’s first press release. As soon as I read the words “designer clothes at sample sale prices,” I knew it was going to be a good event, but what it evolved into was beyond my expectations. When I stepped inside Station Square’s first floor retail space, it was like walking into an industrial-chic, converted warehouse boutique in SoHo, New York.

Opening night on Wednesday, Sept 2nd, brought out the “who’s who” in Clearwater, and then some. City Councilman George Cretekos was there, shopping with his wife, and Mayor Hibbard was on the scene early as well. Paul Wilson of Wilson Media & Advertising and the Sunscreen Film Festival hosted the night’s fashion show, and TV star Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars, Moonlight) stopped by to lend his support to friend and fashion show producer Sarah Clouden. Clouden, who has eight years experience producing fashion shows and even her own line of lingerie in Europe, directed the runway shows for the week.

(August 10, 2009) – As Ovation, the area’s newest luxury waterfront community, nears building completion, two retailers—a fine jeweler and an art gallery—are among the first to open their own doors to the locals and visitors of downtown St. Petersburg.
 
Bernie’s & Son and Mindy Solomon Gallery will both be located in the street-level retail space of the upscale 27-story condominium building on prestigious Beach Drive and 2nd Avenue NE, overlooking downtown St. Petersburg’s waterfront.
